Professor Shortshanks?

This bozo can barely speak English. He's already scheduled to earn something like $50,000 per speech. Now he's going to "teach" students at one of the supposedly top Universities in the world?
  • Richard M. Daley is taking the advice of the old adage, if you can't do, teach.

    Days after Daley's 22-year tenure as mayor of Chicago ended, he was at the University of Chicago on Tuesday to announce he's joining the Harris School of Public Policy Studies as a distinguished senior fellow.

    Daley won't be grading papers, but the dean of the school made it clear that the longest serving mayor in Chicago history will be teaching students what he knows about cities, offering a perspective they can't get from tweedy academics.
One might assume this is payback for favors granted over the past few decades:
  • "At the University of Chicago we don't discuss pay for anybody and we're not going to break this rule in the case of the mayor," said the dean, whose private university version of `no comment' prompted Daley to smile broadly.
You would probably be 100% correct in that assumption.

OT --

If SCC will graciously permit -- here's the link once more to the Sun-Times story about ex-Mayor Daley's appointment to a "Senior Distinguished Fellowship" at the University of Chicago.

The concluding paragraph provides a spectacular insight into the flow of power and influence in Chicago.

"Daley will join a long list of his former aides who’ve found work at the university or its hospitals, including: former Corporation Counsel Susan Sher; former chief-of-staff John Satalic; former Budget Director Diane Aigotti; former First Deputy Housing Commissioner Ellen Sahli; former First Deputy Corporation Counsel Ben Gibson; former press secretary Avis LaVelle; former Planning Commissioner Arnold Randall and former mayoral aide-turned-First Lady Michelle Obama."

(OT) My sister works at Midway for that female Lt. Seems she is out of her mind,and is micro-managing ever since gmack got here! She probably already found out what we all know that she will be gone! Visiting the pension board,and knowing you will be gone,hope you leave soon. Maybe a SGT. could manage that spot,and that female would be put to better use on the streets in a district with all the coppers being moved or she could just retire. She was a detective with me, and it seems her clout has moved her everywhere now clout is gone!! Your clout LT was my clout,but I am retiring next month see ya!

Now Madigan and his gang of Springfield thieves want to straighten out the pension mess on the backs of State, County and City employees. All will be paying about 3 to 4 % more into the pension if they want to keep their benefits. How about the politicians who wasted the money they were supposed to put into the pesion funds over the years? They get $50,000 speaking gigs.

Will it be like the scene in the movie "Back to school" with Rodney Dangerfield when he was discussing business in the real world? Corruption, grafting, payoffs and bribes? Will he discuss "Infastukcher" (infastructure)? For as many times as he said that word and butchered it, I wonder if he can even spell it

No surprise from a university that employed Obama as a professor once too. Maybe they intend to open a new college – the School of Political Corruption and intend to ask Obama to join Daley when he too becomes unemployed in 2013. Maybe even Dick Durbin as well if we’re fortunate enough to see him fall too.

I think this is a great step in the history of post secondary education in our country. No longer will Democrats be forced to learn their trade in dark smoke filled rooms and back alleys. And where else but Chicago for such a lofty endeavor where there is such a concentration of talent to draw from.

Nothing new for the U of C. Remember they paid Obama's mama 350,000 per year for a no show no work job after Honest Sen. Barak Obama managed to get them millions in a state grant.

Scrootening The Wit And Wisdom Of Mayor Daley

Chicagoans have reacted with awe at the news that their famously inarticulate mayor of the last 22 years stands to earn $50,000-a-shot for speaking engagements once he leaves office.

That is a lot of money the King is bringing in for his 'retirement".



Why the f**k are we paying for him to have a security detail if this cock sucker makes more than ANY of us? Hell, I have been threatened several times - it comes with the job, Mayor of the City of Chicago included. Maybe if he did not fuck up so many things people would not want to kill him.

Oh, don't worry. It's not, I'm not, heh heh, you know, I mean, he's not, it's not like the University intends to let Daley speak. (That $50,000-per deal is from a private speaker's agency he signed on with, should anyone want to listen to him.)

His U of C job is finding other people to speak -- "organizing 10 annual guest lectures for each of the next five years."

“That’s horrifying,” said Noah Moskowitz, a third year psychology major. “Mayor Daley doesn’t have the greatest track record. The parking meter deal was $70 million down the drain, and the Olympics was a horrible idea.”

Maddie McLeester, 27, an archeology graduate student...said she was surprised to hear Daley was coming to campus. “It doesn’t really fit with the character” of the school, she said.

"He seemed fine at breakfast" -- but that medication goes sideways just a little, and there he is again waving an AK-47, laughing and threatening to "stick dis t'ing up yer, yer, yer butt an' pull da trigger!"

Run!

Whatta town.

"...go to Northwestern to learn Saws-All orgasms."

--5/27/2011 12:53:00 PM

(This is a reference to a "human sexuality" class at Northwestern University in Evanston that concluded with a live demonstration of, well, sexuality.)

Yeah, I could not BELIEVE that! They just showed it on TV for a second, not quite showing the whole "business end." It really was a dildo mounted in place of the blade on a Sawzall, a powerful industrial handheld reciprocating saw.

You could saw a house in half with one of these -- I mean the pipes and conduits and everything. Just insane. If anything goes wrong...somehow I see an emergency room, staff working frantically...

The gal was the standardized twentysomething dirtytrendy with the lip stud, the slitty little black glasses, and the Day-Glo raspberry streak in her hair, very standard, very boring.

The male friend was the "satyr" type, that fat, degenerate face, small pig-eyes, and actual pointy ears. Some Saturday-night devil-worshiper, Aleister Crowley books, again very standard, very boring.

So craigslist, so five minutes ago.

I understand that Northwestern has dropped that course entirely now. It made a lot of obligatory noises about "free expression," but it dropped the course.

Good.
